I'm happy to share this CFP for a special issue of NANO (published by City Tech) that I am co-guest-editing with Erin Kappeler (Tulane). We're seeking 4,000-word multi-modal essays that address how pop musicians theorize gender and genre while thinking about
 how these categories are imbricated by multiple articulations of difference. The deadline for complete essays is July 31. I've copied the full CFP below. Meanwhile, here's a link:&nbsp;<a href="https://nanocrit.com/Submissions">https://nanocrit.com/Submissions</a></div>

 to Die</i>, offers a theory about the nature of coming-of-age femininity. The song imagines teenage sisterhood as a torsion between loyalty and betrayal; a modality of friendship in which an ethos of “putting love first” undoes the bonds of support that sustain
 young women through the trials of youth. Del Rey’s flippant yet comforting refrain, “Don’t cry about it. It’s all gonna happen,” might be perceived as a betrayal of more sanguine discourses on “girl power” and feminist sisterhood. Yet Del Rey’s provocation
 also opens up space for affirming feminine (and perhaps feminist) agency while keeping peer-to-peer conflict and romantic passion closer to the center of the definition of “real life” for girls.</span></span></span></p>

 about genres of femininity and masculinity in our current moment? How might artists like Del Rey, Janelle Monáe, Mitski, King Princess, Dolly Parton, or RuPaul help us to think through Andrea Long Chu’s recent provocation that “everyone is female, and everyone
 hates it”? Is popular music a utopian site for embracing what philosopher and novelist Sylvia Wynter has called “our collective agency and authorship of our genres of human being”? &nbsp;Or does the music industry’s mode of racialized and patriarchal appropriation,
 commodification, and capitalization continue to threaten popular music’s potential to generate images of femininity that are socially equitable and just? Furthermore, what happens to representations of gender in American popular music when they spill over
 the borders of place, nation, and era? In what ways do pop artists function as arbiters of gender? And how might competing definitions of femininity betray each other across the genre of pop music?</span></span></span></p>
